A jellylike fluid inside the cell in which the organelles are suspended
A part of the cell containing DNA and RNA and responsible for growth and reproduction
Cytoplasmic organelles at which proteins are synthesized.
An organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur.
An organelle found in plant and algae cells where photosynthesis occurs
the semipermeable membrane surrounding the cytoplasm of a cell that regulates what enters the cell based on size and charge.
Cell organelle that aids in cell division in animal cells only
cell organelle filled with enzymes needed to break down certain materials in the cell
A rigid structure that surrounds the cell membrane and provides support to the cell
That portion of the endoplasmic reticulum studded with ribosomes.
Movement of molecules from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration.
diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
the movement of ions or molecules across a cell membrane into a region of higher concentration, assisted and requiring energy.

when comparing two solutions, the concentrations of solute are equal
process by which a cell takes material into the cell by infolding of the cell membrane
a process by which the contents of a cell vacuole are released to the exterior through fusion of the vacuole membrane with the cell membrane.
